4th Street Theater Brings The Revolutionists to Life

Chesterton, IN – 4th Street Theater is proud to present their upcoming production of the comedy The Revolutionists written by Lauren Gunderson. Set in the midst of the French Revolution, this powerful play explores the lives of four women who come together to fight for their freedom and their beliefs.

The story revolves around the characters of Olympe de Gouges, Charlotte Corday, Marie Antoinette, and Marianne Angelle. Although each woman comes from a different walk of life, they share a common goal - to bring an end to the brutal and oppressive regime of France's rulers. Their courage, wit, and determination make them the perfect embodiment of the human spirit and inspire us all to fight for justice.

With its incredible script and talented cast, The Revolutionists promises to be an unforgettable event. The production is directed by Linda Pauli of Chesterton and features Laura Blythe of Porter, Shannon Angel of Glenwood IL, Lisa Zandy of Dyer, and Helana Taft of Chesterton, who have put in months of hard work to bring the play to life. Their dedication and passion for this project are truly remarkable, and the result is a performance that is both powerful and moving.

Linda Pauli, Director, states that "This play is a celebration of the triumph of the human spirit and a reminder that even in the darkest of times, hope and change are possible. We hope that our production will inspire audiences to stand up for what is right and to never give up in the face of adversity." "We are thrilled to be presenting The Revolutionists to our community," said the Theater’s Producer, Sandra Assarian of Chesterton.

Stanlee Hodsden of Portage designed and built the costumes.  Angela Heid of Kingsford Heights designed lighting and sound and serves as Technical Director for the theater.  Kevin Doler of Chesterton collaborated with Pauli on the design of the set.  Sharon Angelina of Michigan City and Laura Sullivan of Beverly Shores created the scenic art on the set.  Jerry Herzog of Hobart has graciously loaned his “personal” guillotine for the production.  So this comedy, quartet, revolutionary dream fugue and true story just may leave you laughing your head off!

The production is set to run from June 2 – June 18 at 4th Street Theater, 125 N. 4th Street in Chesterton. Tickets are on sale now, and admission is $20.  Don't miss the chance to see this incredible play, and join us in celebrating the power of women, the resilience of the human spirit, and the triumph of freedom over oppression.
